How do I edit my Profile?
Profiles allows you to update your name, preferred contact methods, and any personal links for your account.
If you want to view a video about personal settings, you can watch Settings - Personal Settings and Profile Picture (Video).
Note: If you do not see the Profiles tab in your user navigation menu, this feature has not been enabled for your institution. Profiles need to be enabled at the account level before they can be used at the course level. If you are an instructor, please contact your Canvas admin to enable this feature.
Click the Edit Profile button.
Edit Profile Picture
To upload a profile picture, click the profile picture icon. Learn more about how to upload a profile picture.
Note: Profile pictures are a separate permission from profiles. If you do not see a placeholder picture, your institution has not enabled this feature.
